It’s been a while, I know, but I haven’t forgotten about this blog. With all the craziness going on with Tumblr, this blog will probably start seeing a bit more activity, maybe.
That being said, that’s not why I’m posting today. Today, I’m posting because I’m super excited about this book I just bought! Every page is a new writing prompt in the form of the first couple lines of an unfinished story, and you all know how much I love writing prompts!
Anyway, I’m just really excited and wanted to share. I’ve even already filled one of the prompts! Check it out below! I’ve bolded the portion that was the actual prompt.
The music drifted out of the club like a vibrating pulse. I could feel it in my bones. The night was alive with possibility. I could even imagine myself getting to actually go home before sunrise. But time stopped for no one and my target was elusive. Still, maybe I really could get back in time for a decent night’s sleep, if not an outright good one. After all, the night was still young.
The night air carried with it the smells of sweat and too much perfume and cologne, all flowing out of the club with the music. it was intoxicating, the combination of scents, and almost made me forget the task at hand.
Just as I was about to go back into the club and try my luck again, my target emerged from the crowd. He was in the process of lighting a cigarette, so caught up in fulfilling his vice that he didn’t even notice my smaller frame against the wall by the entrance. I let him take a single drag of the cigarette and blow the smoke out of his nose, introducing yet another, far less pleasant smell, into the air.
To him, it would seem that I appeared out of the smoke itself, a specter of cold vengeance and fury, though I was sure he wouldn’t know why. I made sure to enlighten him.
“For Vanessa.” Forcing the cigarette into his mouth, I continued. “Maybe next time you’ll think twice before taking advantage of such a nice girl.”
A bit cliche, I know, but I love a good cliche! This little piece probably won’t go anywhere, but it was fun to write and get the juices going.
As always, think happy thoughts!
